By Brady, Jake, and Logan

What is a Social Contract?

the definition of a Social Contract is an implicit agreement among the members of a society to cooperate for social benefits.

Where do we see it today?

There are many places we see a Social Contract today. One example at an amusement park people wait in an ordered line instead of all circling the ride and jumping on it. people wait in the line so everyone will get a chance to go on and the line will move much faster with everyone's cooperation . Another place we see a Social Contract is in a fast food restaurant people wait in a line to order their food so they can have the fastest service other than crowding the cashier and shouting their order.

When was the social contract discovered?

The Social Contract has been around for a long time, but the first written book on record was in 1762 written by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
